Danbury Hospital Surgeons Removed 132-Pound Ovarian Cyst

Dr. Andikyan assembled a team of almost 25 highly-skilled, caring clinical specialists to plan how to remove the tumor, including gynecologic oncologist Linus T. Chuang, MD, Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology for WCHN, plastic surgeon David Goldenberg, MD, Section Chief, Plastic Surgery Subsection at Danbury Hospital, and anesthesiologist Karl Kulikowski, MD, Vice Chairman, Department of Anesthesia, Medical Director, Operating Rooms, Department of Anesthesiology at Danbury Hospital.

A medical team removed the tumour in a five-hour procedure at Danbury Hospital. A close examination revealed that the patient had a massive ovarian cyst, a benign tumor, which completely covered her digestive tract.

Evidently, the tumor's growth was rather quick, as the patient experienced a rapid weight gain of about 10 pounds per week since November 2017. We were all determined to help our patient, even though this was the first time a case like this had come to Danbury Hospital.

The medical team had to take special care removing the tumour, partially because it was sitting on a major blood vessel, and partially because the patient wanted to retain as much of her reproductive system as possible.

They removed her left ovary, where it originated, her left (fallopian) tube, and affected peritoneal tissue adhering to the ovary, CNN reported.

Ovarian mucinous tumours - so-named because they're filled with a mucus-like substance - constitute around 36 percent of all epithelial ovarian tumours. "But tumours this big are exceedingly rare in the literature". "It may be in the top 10 or 20 tumours of this size removed worldwide".

Thanks to the incredible surgical work and aftercare at the hospital, the woman was able to return to her home within just two weeks of her operation, fighting fit once again. "She was at very high risk of developing blood clots". It was found to be occupying her entire abdomen, stretching the skin, and disfiguring her midsection.

"Luckily, she did not require any additional treatment". Typical symptoms include bloating, lower abdominal pain, loss of appetite, tiredness, and needing to pee more urgently than usual. "She's back to a normal life, she's back to work, and when I saw her in my office, I saw smiles, I saw hope, and I saw a happy woman who is back to her normal life and her family", Andikyan added.

Although ovarian tumors and cancer aren't the most common cancer in women, Chuang had this warning: "It is a very deadly cancer if it's not diagnosed in the early stage".
